Preferred Dentist Program Plan Highlights

AIChE worked closely with MetLife to develop an enhanced dental plan for its members and these new plans were introduced in 2014.

As an AIChE member, you and your family can take advantage of the Preferred Dentist Program (PDP Plan) through the AIChE Insurance Program, underwritten by MetLife. Group dental is one of the most popular insurance benefits offered today. With our plan, you get not only guaranteed acceptance and affordability, but also a focus on quality preventative care and freedom of choice.

  • Guaranteed acceptance for you, your spouse, and dependent children
  • Coverage is immediate
  • Freedom to select the dentist of your choice
  • Additional savings* when visiting a participating dentist
